Brexit Battle Royal

Commons Speaker John Bercow last night threw his hat in the ring amidst rumours of the UK Parliament being prorogued.

Bercow told The Times that he would block such a move even if the courts give the green light on September 6.

Rumours are rife that Labour want a vote of no confidence in the government on Sep 4 or 5.

However, up to 100 Labour MPs in Leave voting areas may refuse to back it. Thus leaving Jeremy Corbyn somewhat red faced.

Former Tory Chancellor Phil Hammond has also been critical of Mr Johnson’s Brexit strategy.

Hammond says Boris Johnson risks betraying the EU referendum by allowing "unelected people" intent on wrecking a Brexit deal to 'pull the strings.’

Hammond accused Dom Cummings of being the driving force behind demands the EU "cannot and will not accede to."

Mark Francois told TBG this morning that a so called Remainer ‘Government of National Unity’ would in reality be “a Vichy style regime” with “Jeremy Corbyn doddering around as an old Marshal P├ętain character, not knowing what’s going on around him.”
